Interpretive Data
Background Information for MUTYH-Associated Polyposis (MUTYH) 2 Mutations:
Characteristics of MUTYH-Associated Polyposis (MAP):
Development of colonic polyps (10-100) with the age of diagnosis occurring in the third decade or older.
Incidence:
Less than 1 percent of colorectal cancer cases.
Inheritance:
Autosomal recessive.
Penetrance:
Greater than 99 percent in untreated individuals.
Cause:
Pathogenic biallelic MUTYH gene mutations.
Clinical Sensitivity:
85 percent of MUTYH mutations in Caucasians.
Methodology:
Targeted testing for the MUTYH gene mutations c.494A>G (Y165C) and c.1145G>A (G382D) by PCR and bidirectional sequencing.
Analytical Sensitivity and Specificity:
99 percent.
Limitations
: Diagnostic errors can occur due to rare sequence variations. Mutations in the MUTYH gene, other than Y165C and G382D, are not evaluated.
